A 59-year-old Windsor, Ont., woman is being sued by her 81-year-old husband, who alleges she stole his $3.5-million winning lottery ticket before filing for divorce.
In documents filed with the court, Gerald Moore alleges Patricia Moore conspired with family members to deceive him and claim the prize in early April.
He claims his wife gave the ticket to her daughter from a previous marriage for her to cash.
The lawsuit, which also names the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp., claims Patricia Moore manipulated her husband's "medication for the purpose of rendering him physically emotionally and psychologically incapable" of understanding the situation.
The allegations have not been proven in court.
Patricia Moore - who the suit alleges was given $1.5 million of the winnings by her daughter - filed for divorce in August.
